Praxair starts first air separation plant in Bahrain

DANBURY, US: Praxair Bahrain, the Middle East-based subsidiary of Praxair Inc, has announced the start-up of its first air separation plant in the Kingdom of Bahrain. Praxair will supply oxygen, nitrogen and argon to United Steel Company (SULB) BSC to support the company’s ongoing expansion efforts.

Praxair’s plant has the capacity to produce 350 tonne of oxygen per day, making it the largest air separation unit in Bahrain. Praxair’s air separation plant will also produce liquid nitrogen, oxygen and argon to supply a diverse group of customers in the regional merchant market, including hospitals, metal fabricators, aluminum manufacturers, refiners, chemical plants and food freezers.

“We are proud to have been chosen to support United Steel Company’s expansion in the Middle East, and we look forward to working together to promote industrial development in the region. The start-up of this plant, along with the earlier acquisition of Bahrain Medical and Industrial Gas Plants, establishes Praxair as a fully-integrated industrial gases business in Bahrain, complete with on-site, merchant and packaged gas operations,” said Vipin Sher, Managing Director, Middle East, Praxair.
